Chapter 11, Page 24, Book 20

Many times there is a reason, beyond the reason .

Day 24  thankful for the reasons why

The heart has its reasons which reason knows not.

Blaise Pascal

Sometimes there are reasons beyond reason.  There is no figuring the reason for them.  We think about the why’s of things, but the answer remains a puzzle.  There is no motive for an action , decision or conviction.  It’s beyond reason.

Shocking and bad things happen and it goes beyond our reason as to why it happened. Most recently this pandemic, how did we ever manage to get into such a state as we are now and how do we get out of it.  The answers seem to be forthcoming with a new vaccine to end it all.  So I’m thankful for the people who figured out a reason why, a way to handle it all.  It’s nice to know the reasons why at times.  

My children were very fond of asking why.  Why this and not that, Why can’t we do something.  I’d get so tired of answering, that I resorted to the answer, because I’m the mom, that’s why.  I even found a sign that hung on the kitchen wall that said just that.  

Sometimes there are no answers at all and we just have to take it on faith that everything will eventually turn out the way it’s meant to.  There just aren’t answers to everything.

Faith consists in believing what reason cannot.

I am praying for this virus mess to pass by quickly. Too many people are losing loved ones. It's a mess and some don't care, or so it seems. Be safe . Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Yep, I think that's in the Mom Book.
Times like this I have to remember a favorite verse that cautions us, "Lean not on your own understanding."

So true about sometimes there are not answers out there for us and that indeed is when faith comes into action!

Yes you are absolutely right, Some things are beyond reason, Once realized one should stop trying, BUT not me sometimes.... And I waste a lot of valuable time. LOL
Love you and it is always good to have a thankful heart, I do strive for that.
